'The most effective training method'

Essink Sportcentrum Milon Fitness sportschool Eindhoven
There is a Milon Circle in both Essink clubs. What exactly is this, and why is it called the most effective way to get fitter? In this article we explain the strength of the Milon concept and why Essink chooses to work with the Milon equipment and the accompanying guidance process.

What is Milon?

Milon is a fully automatic system in which all participants receive a personal membership card. When this pass is held in front of a machine, it automatically adjusts to the correct body measurements and the appropriate level for the participant. This is determined by a professional trainer during the intake. Subsequently, the participant can do a full workout in 35 minutes, covering all major muscle groups and overall fitness.

How is it possible that a workout can be enough in just 35 minutes?

This is because Milon is a very efficient system in which hardly any time is 'lost'. Think, among other things, of not too  having to adjust the machines, efficient circle arrangement and predetermined duration of the exercise. You perform the exercises at a pace and sequence that is scientifically proven to be the most effective. For example, you do not directly load the same muscle group in succession, but you get enough rest before another stimulus follows. 

Secret power

What makes Milon so effective is the eccentric form of training :. Where traditional fitness, for example, has 10 kg in the upward and 10 kg in downward movement, this ratio is different at Milon. For example, someone can push 10 kg away, but lower 12 kg in a controlled manner! Research has shown that it is precisely this eccentric movement that gives the most benefit. This increases the metabolism (the burning of calories) after the workout (Bubbico & Kravitz, 2010). So you continue to burn calories for hours after the Milon training!

Ease of use

In addition to the high efficiency of the training, Essink mainly opts for Milon because of the sublime ease of use. This makes Milon ideal for those who have little interest in a complicated fitness schedule, but simply want to work on their fitness in a simple and pleasant way. Milon is adjustable for all sporting goals, so you can use Milon to lose weight, gain muscle strength or stay fit at a somewhat older age. Due to the electric motor, Milon can perform very safe and controlled movements, making Milon ideal for people with injuries or back problems.
